"The best hotel in Korea"
Everything in Shilla was perfect. The service was really good, very polite. Felt like I was a VIP all the time when I was in the hotel. I recommend to try breakfast in Parkview. It was sad they dont offer Hansik but the food was really good and I loved the variety of choices.
"An Oasis Overlooking Seoul"
I loved everything about this hotel. First and foremost the SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING. The minute you walk in the lobby there is someone to attend you and at any time I was in the lobby heading for the front desk; my needs or questions were answered. This hotel aims for perfection and deliver in every aspect. My clothes were pressed in no time, extra hangers were delivered to my room minutes after my call, room service impecable, and so on. The modern design is not just pleasant but also very practical. The views are stunning and the food is top notch. There's even a bakery/cafe with some of the most perfectly delicious pastries, breads and baked goods I've ever tasted. The macaroons are a specialty and not to be missed. I will definitely stay at the Shilla on my next trip to Seoul.
"Parkview restaurant a treat"
Excellent stay and great experience at Parkview lunch buffet with Family. i stayed here many times before, however its worth mentioning again due to the Family factor this place has if traveling with kids in Korea. The Parkview buffet makes an easy solution for a great lunch for both adults with quality tastes and kids too
"Overrated EFL "
The room was very comfortable and the EFL staff was very kind and helpful. However, I was very disappointed at the quality of the executive lounge. It was just similar to the Qantas airport lounge. Not any better than that. Some reviews here are saying that EFL was great, but from my experience at the other hotels - ex. Langham, Park Hyatt, Shangri-La, Intercontinental...etc, Shilla's EFL was way below the standard. The 'hot' food was too cold and dry. They served cheap wines and champagnes that 'executives' won't drink. Overall, EFL was overrated and overpriced. Parkview breakfast was very disappointing. Most of the food were tasteless and there was no korean representative menu at all. Moreover the service was terrible. The staff was not attentive and passed in front of the customers without saying excuses. As I am korean born Australian, I was always proud of the 'korean quality', but for some reason Hotel Shilla lost its Korean identity.
"Great Hotel, Great Staff and perfect service..."
I stay half of the year in very good hotels around the world and I have to say that The Shilla was one of the best hotels I stayed in during the last few years. The staff is great and the service impeccable. This service mentality goes down to the smallest details and is lived by all staff members. The rooms are very nice and modern with great views. The bed is very good, which is always important. The facilities are great too and they have one of the biggest and best equipped hotel gyms I have ever seen. The breakfast buffet has a big variety of Asian and international foods. I will definitely stay there again when I am back in Seoul.
